The Wizards led 56-49 at halftime and went on a 16-5 run in the third that pushed the lead to 17 points. A 3-pointer by Monte Morris made it 76-59.

Playing against an opponent with nobody taller than 6-foot-9 in the starting lineup, the 7-foot-3 Porzingis had a productive game. He threw down a one-handed alley-oop dunk from Beal in the first quarter and finished 8 of 13 from the field.

After falling behind big in the third, the Pistons were never able to get closer than eight. They had the lead down to nine in the fourth when Beal made a fadeaway jumper while being fouled. The three-point play put Washington up 93-81 with 9:21 remaining.

The Wizards won 10 of their first 13 games last season and have won three of their first four in 2022-23.

Bradley Beal has steadily improved his game year-over-year each of the last six seasons, in one way or another, and in 2020-21 that led to the best season of his career so far. He started the All-Star game and made the All-NBA team for the first time.

Making third team All-NBA means he was a top-15 player last season. If he is to keep improving from here, there are only so many more levels he can reach.

But Beal has a particular focus this summer as he aims to level up once again.


Deeper threes. I’m not trying to compete with Dame [Lillard], I’m not Logo Lillard. But I want to shoot deeper threes and shoot more threes,”  Beal told NBC Sports Washington.

“You know I need to shoot more threes. You probably say it all the time. And, obviously, make them. I have to make them.”

To understand Beal’s trajectory as a three-point shooter requires important context. Last season, he shot a career-low 34.9% from three and made just 2.2 threes per game, his lowest average since 2015-16, his Age 22 season.


According to Bradley Beal signed a 5 year / $251,019,650 contract with the Washington Wizards, including $251,019,650 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $50,203,930.
